No, the owner cannot put a lien on your house without first filing a lawsuit against you and then winning the lawsuit and having the court enter a judgment against you Once the judgment is entered by the court, she can have the judgment recorded against the property.
However, as soon as she files a lawsuit she has to serve you with legal papers and you have the right to go into the court and tell the judge why she is wrong.
If you think she is going to go through all of that for a 150 dollar dispute, it is clear she is out of her mind and it will cost her more to do that lawsuit and she is likely to lose anyhow once you tell the judge your side of the story.
It is very unlikely she will get to the stage of filing a lien against your house.
Please rate 4 or 5 and close out the question. Good luck to you. I wish you all the best.
